We are conserving water in our home by applying similar principles as recycling: Reduce, Reuse & Recycle. One way we reduce our water consumption is with a low-flow shower head attachment, and taking very short showers. Reusing & Recycling water is accomplished by having a pail, bowl or bucket under each faucet. (Rinse dishes in a bowl, wash hands in a pail, capture & scoop shower water into a bucket.) This allows all the used water to be captured for reuse and recycling for watering plants, as well as dumping into the toilet to flush via gravity.
